Same music or movie, different formats. How many times do I have to re-buy it, looking back through LPs, cassettes, (skipped LaserDisc), BetaMax, VHS, CDs, DVDs, BluRay…? Ditto also the ability to use the material offline. Same qualms I have about the money I’m spending on ebooks now — do I really own the digital copy or can they yank it?

You can make the same argument for video games too.

I’m not sure what your beef is with streaming. Streaming is a great deal when it’s free and a good deal when it’s not free. I’ve been checking out free Spotify and I’m impressed with the selection, although they don’t have everything.

Streaming is a great way to discover new music and it’s all free. There is no reason to complain about that, other than the paltry royalties being paid out to the artists.

I own somewhere around 4 or 5 thousand cd’s, so obviously I like owning a physical copy. I collect out of print cd’s and there is so much that has gone out of print or it’s a cdr on demand with a cheap paper insert for 13-15 bucks - now that is a ripoff!

There was a big ruling on streaming today with a Turtles lawsuit, so we may be seeing less pre-1972 music on streaming sites. But that doesn’t bother me!

Also, you might want to check out Firefox with AdBlock to remove the commercials from the beginning of YouTube videos. It works great!

This is my order from CD Japan yesterday, can’t wait to get this stuff. :)
